that you will see in the bill itself. president obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in the corner, that it is illustrative of the politics of the bill. this is president obama at the signing of the bill and you see representatives of teachers

the watergate coverup that's a joke. >> bill: that's what a lot of the obama forces are saying this is a coverup because the administration did not want to admit that its anti-terror policies are weak and it has a presidential component to it, election component to it whose those charges are flying. i do not think they are going to get traction with the casual voter. i don't think they will. >> i'm not sure they will or they won't. but it is a very serious matter for a u.s. ambassador to be murdered by terrorists and then have the government cover it up for some time afterwards and disagree with the obvious. it was obvious it was on the news immediately after it happened. the administration was pretending it didn't happen. >> bill: ben stein thank you very much. we strongly suspect that ben, because i talked to him about it is going to dial up the big stewart o'reilly debate on saturday october 6th. the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium net cast for $4.95. come on. 4. $9. you can see it -- $4.95. no video coverage out the web site. go to the rumble and know that much of the money

class family of four would see their tax bill increase by $2,200 in 2013. jessica, president obama could win. congress could come back with the same composition that it has now. what does the president do, as i ask, between election day and the end of the year to protect americans from the fiscal cliff? >> well, there's, obviously, two scenarios. but one where he will not extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthiest americans. so, the fiscal cliff is going to be folded in in some way into renegotiating the tax cuts and how they get extended. and i think he'll say it's a no go. i'm fought going to extend the bush tax cuts. so, either we can negotiate it now in these few remaining weeks before christmas or we can face a government shut down. i think there will be a little bit of chicken game playing at the end of the year. and what most people in washington think will likely happen is they'll negotiate some way to say, here's a broad framework for what both sides want, let's work it out next year. we'll see. >> sheila, i kind of think americans are a little dilutional they are about the eco
